Blessed and thankful ~


We had a wonderful Father's day celebration here....
all the boys bought dinner
and cooked out on the grill to honor their Dad!

A few thoughts that are on my mind today:
No matter what trials or tribulations that may come our way,
I always want to remember how very blessed we all are and
to be thankful for each and every wonderful blessing that has come our way!!

We could choose to dwell on the negative....
maybe the things that are missing or
what has gone wrong in our lives......
But what we SHOULD think of all that is GOOD in our lives!
And if it's not all good then let's think on how we can fix that....
Our minds are such a powerful tool, don't you think?

Cherish the blessings ~













Wishing my sweet friends a WONDERFUL and BLESSED Monday!!!
hugs and love,
Dawn

Thanks for all the sweet images, today, Dawn! And, I couldn't agree more with your sentiments. God is good all the time - all the time God is good. Celebrate - even in the storms. Hard to do, I know, but the rainbows come when sunshine manifests in the midst of storm clouds.

Joy!
Miss Kathy

Glad you had a nice weekend! Love your beautiful message, and you're so right! I'm always saying be careful what you think and say, because I also believe that the mind is a very powerful thing like you said, and that what you think a say will likely become your reality.

Happy thoughts and wishes!
Sherri:)

It sounds like it was a wonderful Father's Day. Thanks for this beautiful post. It brings to mind Philippians 4:8

...whatever is true...whatever is right...think about such things.

What a wonderful assortment of images you've shared with us. My wheels are already turning as to what I can do with them.

You are a blessing Dawn. ~ Abby

So happy you had a good weekend. Thank you for the Pooh Bear image, just had twin grandsons and the nursery is decorated in classical Pooh, so I will be using the image in my scrapbooking!

Hey sweetie,
What a great & powerful message today. It's so easy to get those negative thoughts going on in our heads. And worse yet to spread them. Love your post friend, & that laughing baby!!!!!!!! Looks like Clara.
